DelDOT announces operational changes amidst coronavirus outbreak

DOVER, Del. – As a result of the current coronavirus outbreak, DelDOT is continuing to review operational needs while keeping the health and safety of employees and customers in mind.

Effective Tuesday, March 17th, all public facing buildings that deliver various services will go cashless statewide, including toll plazas and all Division of Motor Vehicle locations. Only credit or debit cards will be accepted at DelDOT’s four DMV locations, and all customers are urged to utilize to access services such as renewal of Delaware Driver License/ID, renewing vehicle registration, and changing your home address.

The following DMV services will be suspended until further notice:

  • All Class D and Commercial Driver License (CDL) road exams
  • All motorcycle safety courses conducted at all DMV locations
  • All vision tests will be temporarily waived
  • All emissions testing for vehicles
  • All Auto Theft Unit (ATU) transactions

Lobbies will be continually monitored with the goal of keeping them below 50 people. Customers that do not have direct business with DMV or are not accompanying a customer that requires assistance are asked to please remain in their vehicle.

At the state’s three toll plazas, there will not be any toll collectors working to collect cash payments. All traffic will be directed through the EZPass lanes and motorists without EZPass will receive a bill in the mail for the toll with no penalty or processing fee. The Route 896 southbound ramp to I-95 southbound will temporarily close due to the road configuration that does not allow access to the EZPass lanes.
